Legoland Hopeful for a June 1st Opening

Legoland Florida’s proposal for a June 1st opening was approved by the city of Winter Haven this morning. The park has been closed since mid-March, and is ready to allow guests to return the Orlando area theme park.

Now, Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation must sign off before crowds make their way to the front gates. If everything continues on schedule, the target date for reopening is June 1.

LEGOLAND’s plans to keep guests and employees safe and healthy:

  • Reduced capacity at the theme park and water park to promote social distancing
  • Temperature checks will be required for guests and employees. Anyone with a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees will not be allowed in
  • Face coverings are “highly recommended” for all guests age 3 and older
  • Character meet-and-greets are suspended, and some interactive play 
  • “Hygiene screens” are installed at service counters to separate guests from employees
  • Dining areas have been rearranged to promote social distancing
  • Signs and markers will keep guests separated in lines, and employees will monitor social distancing
  • Rides will operate with empty rows and empty seats to separate groups of people
  • Seating will be reconfigured at live performances in accordance with health guidelines
  • No cash will be allowed. Only credit and debit cards will be accepted at the parks. 
  • And, security screenings and ride height checks will be modified to limit physical contact
